VIRTUE @ Plan-B Theatre in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner
Feb 25 all-day
VIRTUE @ Plan-B Theatre in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

The most compelling character in Western Europe’s revolutionary Twelfth Century was a woman: Hildegard. She was an abbess, a visionary, a composer who wrote the world’s first opera, and a friend of popes and kings. She defied authority and insisted on the validity of her revelations and agency, daring to ask: Is it possible to bridge the gap between spirituality and sexuality?

Tim Slover’s VIRTUE, a play with music, features Christy Summerhays as Hildegard of Bingen, alongside Emilie Starr, Jay Perry and Shane Rogers, directed by Jerry Rapier.

Naomi Marine Exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery
Mar 3 @ 9:00 am
Naomi Marine Exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Naomi Marine’s drawings and soft sculptures depict control, organization, and obsessive manipulation. “The combination of seductive and grotesque imagery created within the work hint at the pleasure and revulsion I find our corporeality,” writes Marine. “I imbue surfaces with laborious repetition, distortion, and cumulative patterning to mirror the disruption caused by catalytic interferences in organic systems.” All of this comes together in her exhibition “all things are waiting here.”
